Arts Week 2019: Beneath the BlazerPosted on: 13/11/2019
An exhibition of work by the students of Capital City Academy was held on Wednesday 13th November 2019.
This year’s Arts Week was inspired by the work of the first black female Turner Prize winner, Lubaina Hamid. Her award-winning installation ‘Naming the Money’ explores black under-representation in art and wider ideas of identity.
Students at Capital City Academy delved into the concept of identity, reflecting on their own personal experiences, but also celebrating the identities of their peers. Students explored what makes us unique but also looked at what we have in common. Students were able to question and construct a sense of who we are as individuals and what we represent within the diverse culture of CCA.
The beauty of CCA is in our diversity. A place where everyone can thrive, grow and learn together!
“Unlike a drop of water which loses its identity when it joins the ocean, people do not lose their being in the society in which they live. A person’s life is independent, born not for the development of society alone, but for the development of his self.” — Bhimrao Ramji Ambed
